Lysine is probably not useful in reducing transmission.
Daily therapy reduces transmission by almost 50% (see Corey L, 2004, Valtrex transmission trial, New England Journal) and the CDC recommends daily therapy to reduce transmission as well in their CDC STD Treatment Guidelines, 2015.
Episodic therapy does nothing to reduce transmission.
